Question Making a 2000 F250 ride at the height of an F350

So I bought an F250 even though I was looking for an F350 because it was a 7.3L with the manual and in great shape. I immediately added Airbags in the rear to alleviate the load while pulling my 5500 lb wood-chipper. Now the truck looks low when bags are at low pressure and ass-high when bags are inflated. Any expert opinions on a 2.5" front leveling kit? I'd like to beef up the capacity of the truck overall and don't mind the rear end riding a little stiff if I need to keep a few lbs of pressure in the airbags at all times.

Will a front leveling kit help payload capacity at all?
Will airbags in the back and a leveling kit up front help with equalizing the height, or will it be all front-high?

You could get an add-a-leaf for the front, which would level it about 2" and stiffen up the ride at the same time.

2000 F-350 4x4, 7.3L/6 Speed.

Get f350 rear blocks if you want to be sure.

And no leveling kits won't help with payload. Not that any of this is necessary cause towing 5500 lbs is not much.

08 F350 Spartan tuned, egr delete, 5 in turbo back, no limit cai, ccv, cac pipe, bd 6.0 manifolds, bd up pipes, coolant filter.
3 vehicles in the scrap yard.
1 cummins sold to some boner next town over.
